It's about a rich and cranky billionaire ~~ the king of toilet paper ~~ who decides to throw his greedy heirs off balance by announcing that he has found a new heir ~~ his long-lost granddaughter, Annie. Grady Sullivan is hired to be Archie's bodyguard, only to fall in love with the sassy granddaughter. And that's just the beginning of the adventures that the Peevers family saga endures. Between a butler who is known to "lift" things from the ugly mansion they all are residing in, a son who hides behind his wife's skirts, a dumb blondshell who giggles through everything ~~ guns, arrows, car crashes and everything that can make a mystery novel work. And of course, the romance between Annie and Grady makes for a happy ending.
It is a cute book ~~ one that you can take to the beach or read on the subway because it doesn't require a lot of thinking. And it is a guarantee that you'll laugh at some parts of the plot. Great book for a light read ~~ though the writing isn't of top quality. Like I said, if you want something light and sassy, then this should do it!
The saving grace of this book was the minor characters, a druggie-doctor, a lawyer who cheats at golf, a stiff butler, and a whole passle of relatives so coniving they get tangled in the strings from thier own plotting. Over it all sits Archie, the patriarch, and he is so dispicable, you really can't decide whether to love him or loathe him.
Anyway, read it if you have some time to kill, and you want a light, funny book with little to no involvement
